_Metal Blade Records have made another addition to their roster with the signing of Germany's Downfall of Gaia! The band eschews clichés and delivers a monolithic, yet melodic, wall of sound. Formed in 2008 in Hannover, Germany to date the band has released a demo cd, a split tape, a split LP, and a full length album. Their split with In The Hearts of Emperors can be found on bandcamp here.
Starting out as a crust band then developing further, the band has become much more difficult to compare to any other bands. Over the years, their songs became longer, slower, heavier; their influences range from doom to black metal, from down-tempo, to sludge, and hardcore.
The band comments on their deal with Metal Blade Records:
"We feel quite honored to be a part of the Metal Blade family and to work with one of the most notable labels in the world! We are really excited about our Metal Blade debut and the future! A big thank you to all the people who supported us in any way during the last years, without you all of this wouldn't be possible!"
Their concept album, "Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes", will be released later on in 2012.
